Greenish grey sediments color the waters of Tampa Bay (upper left quadrant), on the west coast of Florida, USA. Upon opening the full image, several long bridges can be seen as grey lines crossing the bay.

A second large indentation on the coast, the Charlotte Harbor Estuary, can be observed by the bottom center. It is filled with slighter lighter colored sediments. The cities of Port Charlotte and Fort Myers are located near its shores.
